Punarvasu is a Nakshatra in Hindu astrology, which refers to the two brightest stars in the constellation of Gemini: Castor and Pollux. In Malayalam Punarvasu is termed Punartham. It is also known as Punarpusam in southern India.

[edit] Mythology

The Hindu god Rama is said to be born under this Nakshatra. There is also a general belief that men born under this nakshatra have only male children. There have been exceptions to this common belief.

[edit] Practice

Under the traditional Hindu principle of naming individuals according to their birthstar (see Jyotisha), the following Sanskrit syllables correspond with this Nakshatra, and would belong at the beginning of a first name:

Ke (pronounced as in "Kevin")

Ko (pronounced as in "cocoa")

Ha (pronounced as in "ha ha")

Hi (pronounced as in "Hinterlands")
